Volunteer: become a part of our success story

From helping in the office or with general maintenance to every aspect of visitor services– we need YOU! We are currently looking for volunteers to help in the following areas:

In return we offer:

  • Full induction, training and support
  • the chance to learn new skills or update old ones
  • work experience for those starting out or seeking a change
  • fun, job satisfaction, a great atmosphere and new friends
  • 10% off purchases in the shop and selected items in the tearooms
  • free tea/coffee in the tearooms when on duty
  • free entry to the museum for you and immediate family
  • entry to our Heritage Mk companions sites
  • and occasional social activities.

It really doesn’t matter if you have only a few hours to spare. Our Volunteer Support and Recruitment Officer, Simon Cook, would love to hear from you:

If you want to know more first, we have information sessions for would-be volunteers every month. Contact Simon for details.

You can also find out what’s involved in each of the roles by clicking on the links.

One of the most important ways of bringing visitors into the Museum is by word of mouth – and we’d love you to help.
